Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Kirby won't eat raw carrots but he likes them roasted. He likes sweet potato whether mashed or cut into small bites so I thought I would try roasting them which was a naturally sweet, crunchy surprise for both of us. Delicious and so good I couldn't stop eating them myself! The outsides are slightly crispy with soft, tender centers. They can be seasoned to your dog's liking but I like them with just a bit of saltiness.

We roast them in the oven and on the grill with yummy results. They're perfect for a side dish or just as a snack which can most definitely be shared with the humans (or the dogs).
